This is not a wine about variety. This is a wine about a place…..and a winemaking ethos. Only 264 bottles were produced from a very special patch of fruit on the Lusatia Park vineyard in the upper Yarra Valley. Wine from the fringe…..the Margin Walker.
There’s no disputing the quality of the fruit that is grown on the Lusatia Park Vineyard just outside the township of Woori Yallock in the Yarra. Deep, red volcanic, free draining soils coupled with vine age, limited yields & a north facing slope approximately 200m above sea level combine to produce grapes of outstanding concentration.
And in 2015 we had a growing season as close to perfect as they come. Long steady ripening ensured slow & even development, complex flavours & balance.
Limited to just 264 bottles, the wine was made by whole bunch pressing to a French oak barrique, wild fermented & left on lees in its barrel for around 5 months. Then racked, but not fined or filtered, & bottled in August 2015.
Volume: 264 bottles
